Look, Love, Adopt

When you adopt an animal, you’re not just saving the life of the animal you adopted. You’re also opening up space for the next animal in need. Our goal at the Morris Animal Refuge is to approach the adoption process holistically to make the best matches for our adopters and for our animals.

 

 

We are no longer requiring appointments or pre-approvals to adopt! Visit our shelter (1242 Lombard St) or PetSmart Adoption Center (2360 Oregon Ave.) during the following hours to adopt your new best friend. We will process your information at the time of adoption and in most cases your animal can go home with you on the same day.  

Adoptions are same-day, first-come-first-served. We cannot hold animals for pick-up at a later date!

What Should I Bring With Me To Adopt?

When you arrive at the refuge, please bring a valid photo ID and cash or card to pay the adoption fee.

If you will be meeting a dog: Bring any children living in the home. If you have another dog already, please bring them as well.

 

What Does The Adoption Fee Cover?

All animals adopted from Morris Animal Refuge are

- Spayed/Neutered

- Up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations

- Treated for fleas and most intestinal parasites

- Microchipped

- Cared for by our loving staff until they find their forever homes

 

We strongly recommend any animals adopted from us to see a veterinarian with 1-2 weeks of adoption for a post-adoption check-up and to establish care.

Megellan wanted us to let you know that he is a most fearsome and stalwart dragonslayer (the proof is in the footage, which you can check out below)! What he'd prefer not to admit is that he's also a total softie who leans so far into your pets that...

Kash

This picture doesn't do it justice, but the absolute cutest part about Kash is how his big floppy ears perk up at either side of his head like some sort of adorable little yorkie bunny! Kash is a very sweet senior guy who wears his age extremely well--
